|Date||VIII ex (776 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Origin uncertain; the general look favours Italy, but certain features speak for France: the ornamental colophon on fol. 147v, the odd form of capitals H and Z, and the spelling ci for ti, all of which, of course, are possibly taken over from a French exemplar (cf. the Milan Vitae Patrum, CLA 3.341).

Script is mostly a rather clumsy early minuscule: both a and open a, d and (less frequently) ꝺ are used; the big and roundish type written by one scribe (on foll. 80 ff.) reminds one of Veronese script, and other hands seem to have an Italian look. Noteworthy are the forms of capital H with the arched middle and Z flanked by two dots (fol. 276v). Corrections by ninth-century hands. Notae Tironianae occur in marginal entries saec. IX on foll. 157 (deest), 207v (deest), 210v (usque hic). The manuscript suffered in the upper margin from damp.
